A Turkey Buzzard soars an almost straight line following a road looking for kill. One of the most beautiful of soaring birds, the Cathartes aura is a warm dark brown above, dark dove gray below; it’s naked red head allows it to feed without making a mess.
In the mornings they sit high up with wings spread to catch the warming sun. They bathe regularly to keep themselves clean. Often maligned, much needed and lovely to watch soaring through the sky.
